Lorraine loved spending time at the family cottage on Lake Gogebic MI. To her up North was always about the more the merrier.
Many hours were spent there with family, friends, and the grandkids making cherished memories.
Lorraine also loved her card games with the family and her Friday card group. She looked forward to family stopping in for a quick game of 500 Rummy. Of course it was always more fun to her if she won. She would remind you that she won and then pass that information on to the next person who stopped by. She looked forward to that occasional trip to the casino. Mom and dad also spent many winters in Gulf Shores AL. with good neighbors and friends. She will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by her family. Lorraine is survived by her daughters Linda (Tom) Felzer of Appleton, Connie Otto of Darboy.
